SPRING 2014 COURSE
B217 Teaching Bible and Sexuality in the Church
Instructor: Rev. Jeff Moore
Dates: Feb 7-8; March 21-22; April 4-5; May 2-3
This course will look inter-contextually at issues of sexuality and
biblical interpretation, including many texts that have been especially
challenging for rich community life and a holistic understanding of
human sexuality. We will examine texts and traditions, the history of
interpretation, and the effects of these texts and their interpretations
on the life of the church today. Students will be encouraged to work
to develop a sense of the meaning and import of various biblical ideas
relating to human to sexuality and to design strategies and encounter
resources to help facilitate faithful inquiry, open discourse, and safe
conversations with other people in the life of the church.
This course is
open to lay, ordained, and ministerial track candidates. Non-degree
students may take the course for credit or as an auditor. The cost to
take the course for credit is $1485. Auditors pay $350.
